DICE reveals Battlefield galore

The series that put DICE on the map is coming at us in full force at the NYCC. They have revealed not just one, but two Battlefield-themed games for us to drool over, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield: 1943. BF:BC2 makes a pleasantly surprising appearance on the PC platform as its predecessor was noticeably absent the first time around. It’s described as having a “level of fervor to vehicular warfare never before experienced in a modern warfare action game.” Music to my ears.

BF:1943 looks to be a cross platform rehash of BF:1942 complete with the popular Wake map and much improved graphics and physics. The destructible environments alone make it worth while even if it is a rehash. It will be multiplayer only and available on the same platforms as BF:BC2 – PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Although BF:BC2 is not slated to release until sometime next year, BF:1943 is set to release this summer. Between these two games and the inevitable release of Battlefield: Heroes we are getting our fair share of Battlefield saturation in the next couple years. But who’s complaining, I know we’re not.
